Google removes (+) search operator

Hello Everyone,

It has been a while since the last post and I had been very very busy on a brand new SEO project on a tourism website of my own. I also have been working on getting my own SEO website and blog which you might see live by mid November.

There had been plenty of things happening around as far as SEO’s are concerned and specially the changes Google had been making, including the PR checkers not working as a result of an update to the link (which is resolved now lasted a couple of days). The panda update which sent some sites down the drain by taking off up to 35 to 40% of the site visits. Launch of a new tab called Search Engine Optimization on Google Analytics and the list goes on.

If you had been following my Blog from the beginning and read one of my posts about Search Operators, effectively used the Search Operators, this might be useful news for you. Google had silently removed the + operator from search results, so this will not have any influence when used on a search term. However, the (-) operator and the rest are still working.

Have yourself a try copy the bold tour +packages  and paste on the Google search bar and hit enter.
